Finally! It's here!
This is the result of +10 hours of work, spread out over several days. I may put up a tutorial later.
I really like the way the planet turned out; the highlights are absolutely beautiful. The oceans look very realistic, and the light feels just like it should. With help from my friend Matthew Sample, I finally got the moon to look a realistic distance away from the planet.
It's also wallpaper-resolution (1920x1080; if you need bigger, comment and ask!), and balanced to the right to leave room for desktop icons. Overall, I'm really happy with it, and I think it's one of my best creations yet.
